I fall for puzzles and mysteries. Put a code in front of me, or a series of entirely unrelated clues, and I will sit there for hours if I have to, attempting to solve it. Even if I end up completely uninterested in the product a puzzle is promoting, I generally leap at the chance to make sense out of vague patterns.
So, me being me, this untitled teaser trailer is the proverbial catnip. If I had all day to mull over the cuneiform-like symbols that flash on screen, the binary codes that march across the background, or the Braille-like ticker that marches across the bottom, I'd be sitting here until the wee small hours of the morning happily deciphering all sorts of irrelevance.
So. I have no idea what game this video from GameTrailers is promoting. (And sadly, the game itself is unlikely to focus on the unravelling of codes. So few do!) I have no idea if I will like the game, which seems in some sense to be a shooter, once I do know what it is. But I know that a video like this is designed for people like me... and that there's a weekend just about to start, with time for someone to make sense of it.
